Great show, but some sound is always lost in digital transfer and none of the recordings up here deliver the energy and playing that I can hear pumping through my old Volvo tape deck on my old killer board of this show. They tear the second set up. Classic early 80's sound with incredible drumming.
The show is a 5, but the recording leaves her at 4 here. I love the audience tapes myself, but I'd love to see a nice board of this show up here. ROOOAAARRRR!!!!

I remember this show as exciting, but after listening to this recording, there was alot going on that I didn't catch at the time. We got to the parking lot early and in the distance, you could see the huge inflatable King Kong, crawling up the side of the world trade center (promo for the movie). The night before had been the 40th anniversary Of Dr. Hoffman's discovery of LSD and the electricity was still in the air. Like the night before, our "out of towner" tickets found us stage left, perpendicular to the drum sets. Backstage before the show, you could see Hells Angels and various band members walking around. Mickey was involved with one of the roadies in modifying a 55 gallon drum, so he could drag a chain over/ through it (From :20 on in space, you can hear Mickey shout "tighter!, tighter!" and he begins dragging the chain over the barrel as Jerry noodles in front). The second set is an intense, spacey set. Started out by the recently returned "Help>Slip!>Frank" trio, featuring some cool Brent xylophone effects. The next highlight is a long Playin'with some interesting Brent effects at 3:30. Heading into drums, Brent and Bobby won't stop playing and Mickey finally jumps down from his kit and literally escorts Bobby backstage by the arm. This space is one of many strange and cool ones from the 83-84 time frame. 2 Days shy of his "Raven" space anniversary from the year before, you can hear Phil making strange vocal noises starting at 6:02. Starting at 9:00 and 10:30 you can hear segments of what ultimately became the "Twilight Zone" TV theme song. "Love the one you're with" was fun in person, but a bit rough to listen to on this recording. The rest is a great show. Hope you enjoy it.

Early 80's meltdown said: "Grate stuff in my book except Stephen Stills that dude was Wack and couldnt hang by this time in 83 he was fat and shot. sorry."
Early 80's is an IDIOT! I was at both these shows with Stills and he could still smoke Jerry at a moments notice. Remember Stills honed his playin' with numerous jams at a beach house with Hendrix. Just listen and he still rips it. I've played guitar professionally for 35 years so I should know...plus saw over 200+ shows from 78-95. This guy just doesn't know his ass from his elbow.

Subject: Much better than the board
The SBD has almost no crowd noise. So what? It's thin, wheezy, and sounds like it was recorded on a dictaphone. This has much more fullness, not just the crowd, which is still quite manageable, but also the instruments are MUCH better represented.

Subject: Playin...
What can I say.. This show says it all for me. The playin' in da band.. Off the hook.

-Drums.. Brent- it all is on. Mickey gots xylophones and new cymbmbals from Japan.. etc. Phil is slappin time. Tight and a standaed for me.
Bombs on slipknot.. Forget 'bout it. Where in Jersey
Chef.

Memories...this was my first show. I was 13 years old. Sadly, I don't recall much of the show, except Stills and "Love the One You're With." I also recall the discovery of a "party favor" beneath the seat in front of me. My pre-pubescent pals and I smoked it quickly, while our chaperone (my buddy's dad) visited the men's room. This is the show that launched my Dead journey, which lasted about 15 years and saw me travel from east coast to west to see approximately 80 shows. It'll be nice to hear this show again. Thanks.

Jerry may have been smokin a little Persian by the sounds of it and the time was about right.
Jerry big Boss was laying it down hard and Brent backed him with those hypnotic bells & buzzer keys timed out perfectly, they were probably gettin off themselves. Hot tours left and right, I don't care what anyone says about 1983-84 He was smokin' night after night. (literally)
Grate stuff in my book except Stephen Stills
that dude was Wack and couldnt hang by this time in 83 he was fat and shot. sorry.
Hot HSF check it.

Subject: Fantastic Show
This is a great show and a nice Aud Recording - The recording puts you right in the middle of everything going on.

I think the is the best of the Help->Slip ->franklins of the 80's - it smokes. I attended the show (and many others between 77 - 87) and this is in my top 5.

The 2nd set just takes off - The Help -slip - franklins is superb, followed by a funky Women R smarter - into a Playin' that melts away.

Great show - Up there with the 10/12/84 (another East Coast Gem we saw) for me.




I have been listeneing to this show for the past 20+ years off and never disapointed.

Its a great show

My boy Harlan (shout out to Livingston, NJ) dragged me to my first Dead show this clear night in April of '83. 23rd row, floor. Next thing I know Stephen Stills is trading the FATTEST licks Jerry I had ever heard anyone play anywhere.

The whole show is killer, AUD recordings rock!!!!

Thanks for letting me relive the moment!!!

Good Aud of historic Dead lowpoint. Stills was crap. I hope the Angles back stage whumped his fat ass for having the nerve to crash Dead's party

Walk on guests are always good for ratcheting up the vibe. Stephen Stills being no exception. This show is one that reminds me how much fun this band really was/is.

The best AUD's really capture all the instruments and put you right there with the crowd, which is what SBD's often don't do. This is another great AUD from Steve Rolfe. Archive.org is doing a great service getting all this out there for mass consumption!
